Final Fantasy III (DS)

 

Not only is this a nicely done remake of an influential, little-seen early chapter from this long-running role-playing series, it's also an all-around solid RPG.

As mentioned, the gameplay will include the kinds of changes you'd expect from a DS game. So not to overhaul the bodywork of the game completely for anyone who's never played Final Fantasy III before, the gameplay will remain relatively untouched while...

Final Fantasy III - DS review at Thunderbolt Games

 

A numbered Final Fantasy game finally returns to Nintendo! Alas, it is not a brand new game. But, then again, this no mere port either. Final Fantasy III for the DS (herein, referred to as Final Fantasy III-D) is a complete remake of the Japan-only...

Hands-down, one of the best role-playing game on the DS in 2006.

As you can probably tell I truly enjoyed my time with Final Fantasy III. Square Enix really has a good sense of what works great on the DS. The DS needs more innovative and fun games like Final Fantasy III and Rocket Slime, and Square Enix is doing its...

Final Fantasy III (DS) Review

 

It's the only Final Fantasy game never to hit the stores in the U.S. Was the almost two decade long wait and the complete facelift actually worth it?

Square-Enix promised a remake of the tale that never hit Western shores. They served it up on a golden plate. While FFIII might not THE best RPG of the last few years. It's definitely one of the best handheld RPGs in a long time. It's a shame that the...

But this reviewer enters the fray with an open mind. While I'm a fan of the Final Fantasy series, I'm not without my critiques of the series. And yet I have no preconception that the only way to be a critic is to be, well, savagely critical. I'm just a...

Great, updated graphics make FFIII fit in with other DS titles, or N64/PS2-era RPGs, at least ; Completely redone story maintains the essence of the original tale, but adds loads of depth to the characters, plot and world ; The stylus control scheme...

The game’s level of challenge may be a bit daunting to folks weaned on modern RPGs

Final Fantasy III benefits from a complete makeover in its first US appearance, transforming from the ugly duckling of the mainline Final Fantasy series into a must-have for DS owners! It’s Final Fantasy on the go... it's, y’know… fun!

Sadly, the first Final Fantasy for Nintendo DS offers little innovation.

In its defense, Final Fantasy III's battles are a bit more involving than a traditional Final Fantasy game due to the game's unforgiving nature. Enemies often put up one heck of a fight. Combined with the game's lack of save points within dungeons,...

I haven't played a "proper" Final Fantasy title in over ten years, since Final Fantasy III (or VI, as we now know) on the SNES in 1994. I've hit Crystal Chronicles on the GameCube and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance on the GBA, even skirting other...

Puts up a real challenge. Great music

Navigating menus is still a pain

Final Fantasy III may not be the ideal introduction to the series for a beginning RPG player, but for seasoned veterans who want a reminder of how things were back in the day, it's almost perfect; the graphics and sound have been updated, but the...

This remake of a classic RPG gives you plenty of reasons to keep your Nintendo DS in hand during the holidays.

Revamped graphics and music are a sensory treat; paved the way for some of Square's most beloved games

Archaic game design can be frustrating at times; more story sequences and video could have kept things more interesting
